In this personal work of nonfiction, Shaun Tan shares his artworks of ‘creatures’ over the course of twenty-five years, from the starkly existent to the purely imaginary. As he states in the book, he is inviting readers of his stories and witnesses of his art to be co-creators who invent their own stories through their encounters with these creatures. I love that you get to hear Shaun Tan speak directly to you about his philosophical concerns, contemplations, intentions, and feelings behind his illustrations and his own sources of inspiration for them. Simply, brilliant and beautiful (but in no simple way)."

The Anthropocene Reviewed (Signed Edition): Essays on a Human-Centered Planet By John Green Cover Image
$28.00
Currently Unavailable
ISBN: 9780525555216
Published: Dutton - May 18th, 2021

This is actually John Green's autobiography maskerading as a series of short essays on subjects as diverse as The Internet and Canada Geese. Definitely one for fans of his Young Adult novels, including The Fault in Our Stars. But it's also a moving memoir of a creative Gen Xer, I think parents of teens will get a lot out of it too.

Silly, sort of historical romp that reimagines Lady Jane Grey (aka the Nine Day Queen of Tudor England) as a shapeshifter. There's kissing and snark and it is so much fun.
